AW is a real term for the DA* sealing, it's written down on the side of the DA*16-50 box i've, can make a photo for the non believers

I hope it's FF compatible.. I might even pick it up and adapt it to my D800 if so!

It's almost certain that it will be FF compatible; the longer a lens is, the less difference there is between a FF lens and a APS-C lens. I'm unaware of any >200mm prime that is APS-C only, actually (but of course I'm not familiar with every lens).

Yes I was wondering this will be FF or APC, do you think the number they are giving is the APC number or the FF?

The number (focal length) is the number, regardless of whether or not the lens is FF or APS-C.

That DA* 300 must be a counterfeit.

Just a bump to keep this thread alive. Pentax did say 2012 for release.

It has all the hallmarks of the DA* series. I never thought I would be interested in buying such a long lens, but we'll see....

What did you expect? Blinking lights so nobody knocks it inadvertently?
